The one thing I am passionate about...
Theater--I've been involved with it for as long as I can remember. I get to meet new people all the time and experience the high of performance. It challenges me, excites me, and comforts me all at the same time.
I typically spend my leisure time
Singing, acting, and dancing in community theater. I've been singing all of my life and it is a true escape for me. When I'm onstage, I just get this rush of excitement and the whole rest of the world seems to disappear.
The most influential person in my life has been
Caring-- I know it sounds cliche, but when someone really cares for you, you can't help but feel good... and besides, caring seems to encompass all those special qualities that we look for in a partner: sensitivity, kindness, and respect, right?
The first thing people notice about me
I'd have to say my sense of humor. I love to be silly and laugh till I cry. I think that being able to laugh (even if it's at your own expense) is always the best medicine.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The Five People You Meet In Heaven. I'm not a particularly religious person, but I found the whole idea of this book captivating. It's not that the book tells you who you'll meet, but it takes you through one man's journey. I grew up Roman Catholic, but I consider myself spiritual not religious; this book just comforted me.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Family- when you come from a big one like mine, you just can't imagine life without 'em.
- Music- It's my love, my therapy, my passion, my talent, my form of expression. It's just me.
- My 2 Cats- I think everyone should own a pet in their lifetime to experience true love. Enough said?
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Unfortunately, I can be a bit shy at first. Once you get to know me though, I'm pretty darn outgoing. People think that because I perform on stage a lot in front of crowds, I must be confident and outgoing, so they're suprised when I tell them that I can be a little shy at times.
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I'm completely new to online dating and to be quite frank, the whole idea scares and excites me. I've never been one for blind dates (what will he think of me?), but eventually the bar scene just ain't where it's at. I'm not looking for marriage just yet, but a true companion or partner to share some time with sounds fabulous.
